Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
I am so sorry your baby is not feeling well.I know you are worried about him.
Can you please tell me what and when Moro ate last.
when is the last time you remember seeing a Bowel Movement from him?
is he urinating?
any vomiting or just the foam?
After your reply please give me a few minutes to type detailed answer.
I was hoping to hear right back from you so I could help with Moro.
Usually,when a cat spits up foam, it means he is nauseated.
You can give your baby one quarter of a ten mg pepsid a/c (famotidine) to settle his tummy:
Since Moro is known to eat non food items you must watch for symptoms of a blockage, (God forbid). Those could be vomiting, no stools, pain, gagging, not eating or unable to keep down food or water.
If any of that occurs you must get your baby to a vet ASAP.
It was a good idea to give him the olive oil but do not give any more because too much can cause nausea.
Of course, fumes can cause nausea as well.
As far as fleas go, you can control them by applying monthly advantage, frontline II or revolution. Some are sold OTC in pet stores
Please let me know how your baby is doing. If you still have questions just press reply and I will be here for you.
Thank you so much for your quick response, I didn't realize you got back to me so fast.
Moro ate about 1/4 of a can of cat food (tuna can sized) this morning. He also drank a little bit of water afterwards. He has kept his food down as well, he's pretty good about eating and not throwing it up. He is actually having a bit more food now as I type this.
I've been following him around and he urinated this morning as well but I have not seen a bowel movement from him yet.
As far as his vomiting, it's all just white foam. To be honest, his spit up could have been going on for longer than a week but I'm not exactly sure when he started.
The food he is eating right now is this canned tuna for cats that I had bought from Trader Joe's.
He's behaving so normally though besides his spit up of white foam, I don't understand what could be wrong with him.
Thanks so much for getting back to me so fast.
You are more than welcome! It is my pleasure to help someone as wonderful as you and your sweet baby!
I am glad to hear Moro is eating and behaving normally.He is probably just feeling a bit naueous.
See if he will lick an ice cube. You can also apply a cold compress to the back of his neck.Those things help relieve nausea..
You can also add the pepsid to soft food to settle his tummy.
Please let me know he he is later.
Moro is VERY lucky to have YOU!
Thank you so much, Terri.
I feel so much more relieved now. I brought him an ice cube and he seemed very interested in it!
I'm going to be on the look out for his bowel movements and make sure he is very comfortable. Thanks so much for the pepsid advice as well.
I'm very grateful that you could help Moro and I.
Thanks so much for your positive rating and very generous bonus. It is very appreciated.
Please let me know how your baby is later.
Thanks for following up. Moro has been continuing to be doing well and acting normally. He eats well and potties well.
